My Teaching Approach

"I believe that everyone has a unique golf swing therefore I cater my teaching style to your individual needs. By teaching in a personalized manner it allows the student to develop their skills by understanding their own swing instead of creating a new swing. I focus on the basic concepts of the golf swing, such as setup, posture, and aim, to create the most consistent and accurate golf swing. I believe you can drop the most strokes by focusing on accuracy within your short game then working back to the tee. Golf is not only a physical sport, but the mental aspect is extremely important. Helping my students to gain personal confidence in themselves and their golf game is one of my favorite aspects of teaching."
